We just got back from Trick-or-Treating, and it was great fun! Emily went to Mema Marge's, Mrs. Kershen's, Chippa's, Abby's, Kyle's, and Ann's house! We got lots of candy, and Emily had a wonderful time! Click the pictures below to see more, lots of movies!

Today we went to church, shopping with Mema Marge, hung out with Chebon, went to the yellow park, then went to the church carnival with Papa Vinny and Chippa. After the carnival, we headed out to dinner. We had a great day! Some of the pics of the day below:

Chebon came over and watched some football today, played wii with Emily, then went to the yellow park with her! They swang, went down the slide (backwards....) and had lots of fun! Thanks for coming over Chebon! We hope you like your birthday present! More pics of the day here:

Parent Day at Ballet

Leslie got to see Emily at ballet today! Apparently things started well, but Emily didn't really like everybody looking at her, so after getting a little upset, decided to sit with mommy the rest of the time.

Other than that, not too much to report, just going along day by day!

Hectic Sunday!

What a day! We began at 7:30AM driving to Blanchard to pick up Papa David and Grandma Glenda, then driving to Ada for the 100th year for Asbury United Methodist Church. We went to service, ate lunch, then drove back to Norman. Emily napped on the way, and it was a good thing she did, because as soon as we got home we headed out to the NRH Carnival! She had a great time! We're finally home resting now!

Dinner tonight with Papa Vinny and Chippa

After that close OU win we're heading out to dinner with Papa Vinny and Chippa this evening. I'm getting the hang of posting photos/videos/etc., so you should be seeing more updates the more I get a hang of things on this end.

Rumors have been flying about the new iphone, iphone 3rd party apps being available in February, and an xbox 360 with a built in hd dvd player. I'm hoping Santa will bring many presents for me this Christmas :)

Of course, if none of those work out, I could always take the homestar figurine sets 1 and 2 :)... or maybe some ties, or shirts, or.. nothing is always good :)

Couple of things

Now I'm seeing if movies work on blogger.. if so, enjoy the OOOOOO-U! - Well, the movie didn't work, so you can see it here.

Date night!

Papa Vinny was nice enough to come over tonight and watch Emily, so Ryan, Holly, Leslie and myself are going to Bricktown! We're planning on dinner at Zios, then heading to a movie, although we don't know what yet.

As you can see below, we went to the pumpkin patch today. Emily picked out her pumpkin, and we also got one to carve tomorrow. We'll take some pics and post them here when we do it!

See you later!

Testing some more

Trying a new layout to post pics from Picasa. I'm also going to try to post the slideshow here below, let's see if this works:

Test with pic

Another test

Test Post

testing again... Let's see if this one works..

Wow, guess this works..

Okay, so it looks like things are up and running. Emily and I just got done reading the Hallo-Weiner and Brown Bear Brown Bear. She now reads Brown bear to me, which is really fun, and she especially likes the scary parts in Hallo-Weiner.

The other day we were walking home from the big yellow park the back way (which we found just a couple days ago, much faster than walking all the way around, but it is through some pretty tall grass and weeds and trees and stickers and bugs and stuff...) and it was getting dark. Emily quickly grabbed me and asked, "is there a ghastly monster in there?" as she pointed toward the trees. I told her that the ghastly monster was only in the Hallo-Weiner, and even then it was just a couple of ornery cats, not really a ghastly monster. She seemed okay with that, but it was pretty funny hearing her ask about the ghastly monster!

What else? Not much... We're all working hard (especially Emily! I heard that she cleaned up all the tables today at school! Taking after her OCD dad I see!!!), and ready for some rest!

See you later!

Test from phone





Well this really easy site is giving me fits. I've tried updating it three times from my phone, with no luck. Stay tuned, maybe I'll figure it out eventually.

Still listening?

So I go through all that trouble finding a new way to post, and find the easiest thing I could imagine, and what happens next? I stop updating. It seems that being as easy as it is, I keep telling myself "ahhh, I can just do it later, it will only take me three minutes to update." So the days go by, with me saying the same thing to myself over and over again.

It warms my heart to hear of the two people in the universe who actually check this thing on a regular basis tell me they miss it! So, with that in mind, how can I not update at least today???

So, what's going on you ask? Well, not all that much. We just found a back way path to the park this evening, which was pretty cool, and cuts down our time to the park significantly. Other than that, we had a GREAT time watching the OU game yesterday!

We should be taking Emily to the pumpkin patch some time this week, so with any luck I'll take pictures with my new EXTREMELY-easy-to-take-pictures camera (probably why I haven't been taking pictures lately.. too easy) and post them for the third year in a row!

Ah, this reminds me of a new show I wanted to go check on over on revision3. It's called TekZilla, with Patrick Norton, who moved over from DL.TV. Just my nerd moment, sorry :)

Oh, and thanks to Chebon for the great advice on lightbulbs! Ooh, which reminds me again, we have a clean garage! It's wonderful! Anyway, halogen, the only way to go!
